Haigazian University Acknowledges New Donations
After a stormy summer in Lebanon, and as the academic year 2006-2007 starts, President Paul Haidostian acknowledged with thanks a number of US grants received during the past month (Lincy Foundation USA, $100,000/- ; USAID Small Grants, Lebanon $50,000/- ; the Flora Family Foundation, USA $10,000/-) to various programs of Haigazian University.
Theses grants came as a welcome addition to the regular financial support of the American Missionary Association of America, the Stephen Philibosian Foundation, the Conte Foundation, and the Common Global Ministries Board of the United Church of Christ & Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) USA.
Moreover, Haidostian commended the scholarship programs of the Galouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and the Vatche & Tamar Manouguian Foundation which continuously support Armenian students through direct grants.
Despite all the aforementioned generous donations, President Haidostian expressed the country''s economic hardships and the increasing financial needs of students and the university, as a consequence of the July-August war on Lebanon.
